I bought this about a year ago and I LOVE it. I saw it at target and it was only $22.00 so at first i didn't think it was going to work unless your hair was already pretty much natually traight and fine. The day I got it I had my hair crimped (slept in braids) but decided to try it out anyway. Now, Ya'll my hair is REALLY think and naturally wavy and it's only going to get wavier/curly as I get older because I have my mom's hair and that's how it went with her. But because of the heat settings it works on all hair types and it even dries your hair. Some down sides: I wouldn't reccomend drying you hair with it every day or in fact using it every day espescially without a heat protectant spray. When you DO dry it, though beware of the steam. it is vented so it steams a LOT. Also it it easy to burn yourself. A little word of advice: you might want to experement with heat settings because on the package they give you yours but I feel like you can go a WHOLE lot lower than what they give you which can prevent damage. Overall, I LOVE THIS THING!!!!!!!!
